What is an XCODE file?

An XCODE file is a software development project created by Apple Xcode, a software development IDE for macOS applications. It stores all of the project's information, including references to source files and project configuration data. XCODE files are rare since Xcode saves projects as .XCODEPROJ files by default.

More Information

Xcode is a free IDE Apple offers on the Mac App Store to provide tools for building, testing, deploying, and monitoring apps. As macOS developers build software with Xcode, they can save their progress as a project.

While Xcode saves projects as XCODEPROJ files, previous versions of the IDE saved projects as XCODE files. Information stored in the files includes source code, image files, and debug and release build settings.
